The first thing Janzen saw as she was being pulled out of the destruction was a sea of people trying to help.
“Everywhere you look, there were people,” she said. “It was very overwhelming to see so many people helping without hesitation.”
None of the children with Janzen suffered serious injuries. She and some of the other teachers only came away with concussions, which she considers a blessing. She believes the walls that covered the group may have saved their lives by shielding them from flying debris.
Briarwood, 14901 South Hudson Ave. in Oklahoma City, was one of two Moore elementary schools destroyed by the tornado. No one was killed at Briarwood, but seven children died at Plaza Towers, about 1 1/2 miles east of Briarwood.
